Why Packing Services Are So Great

Posted on: 14 August 2015

Investing in a packing and storage service is well worth the investment when you are moving. The service can make your move much more seamless. It is absolutely essential for households that are unable to lift and move all their stuff on their own. This article will explain how packing and storage services work, so you can decide if they're right for you.

Complete Packing Service

Some customers feel insecure about having strangers pack up and move their stuff. Remember that these are professionals and they will handle all of your sensitive stuff with the utmost respect and discretion. You can literally leave your room just as it is and the packers will transfer it to your new home. In fact, you can even have them unpack the stuff back into the new room. This is a very convenient service.

Moving Large Items

Another reason for investing in professional packing services is their ability to handily move large items. First, they have a large group of men who are able to lift and move all the large and awkwardly-shaped pieces of furniture. Second, they have all the necessary trucks to safely pack and store your stuff during the move. Even if you are able to get a large enough crew of volunteers to move all your large furniture, the chances are that you won't have large enough vehicles to safely move the stuff.

Some pieces of furniture need to be disassembled before they can be safely moved. Choose a service that is willing to do the extra work to disassemble the necessary pieces before moving them. Also, make sure they are able to move your largest and oddly-shaped things like a piano, or bed frame.

Safe and Secure

The best thing about using a moving service is that you can feel safe and assured that your stuff is in good hands. In fact, most services will offer extra insurance for the protection and replacement of items that are broken during the move. This insurance will give you coverage even if it is not necessarily the movers' fault.

Long Term Storage

In some instances, you will not be moving immediately into your new place. With a moving service, such as Bekins Van Lines Inc, you can keep your stuff in storage without having to transfer it to a storage facility. The movers will load your stuff into a truck with a removable storage container. The container can be easily moved off the truck and into a storage facility where it will be safe and secure in the meantime.

In the long run, you will definitely spend more money on a packing and storage service. However, you will save yourself a lot of time, stress and physical pain. 


Tips For Moving

When my employer was purchased by another company, I wondered what it meant for my job. Although I was nervous about being let go, I quickly discovered that I was one of their best people. After talking with my new boss, they explained that they needed me to travel around for work to train new departments. Because I didn't have a family, I was the best employee for the job. Unfortunately, the company branches were in worse shape than my employer originally suspected. A two-week business trip quickly turned into six months, and I realized that it might be smarter to move to new areas instead. I have moved 16 times now, and I know what it takes to get the job done.
